Odd that he'd consider the THT as a car sub. He's got a lot to learn, but I do like his enthusiasm.

Can you just multiply everything by 6 in your 1/6 model and have it accurately represent your full size sub? I admit I skipped part of the video.

More or less, but only if the driver is matched to the enclosure.

Interesting, but you won't see the engineering community jumping on board the concept. We've been able to accurately predict the performance of any speaker with modeling software since the introduction of AkAbak in 1995.
